In a move that makes those overdue library book fines seem insignificant, a Pickens, S.C., woman was arrested for the failure to return a Jennifer Lopez movie she rented in 2005.

Kayla Michelle Finley, 27, was charged with the misdemeanor of petty larceny in relation to a missing videotape of the movie “Monster-In-Law,” according to television news in Greenville, S.C.

She was arrested on Thursday and spent the night in jail, WYFF4 reported.

Finley rented the movie in 2005 from the now-defunct Dalton Video. She was sent letters to return the video several times but never responded, according to a warrant, the local Fox station reported.

Pickens County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Creed Hashe said that when Finley didn't return the movie, the owner of Dalton Video went to a Pickens County magistrate, who issued an arrest warrant.

She spent the night in jail until her bond hearing Friday morning, when a judge issued a $2,000 personal recognizance bond and she was released.

Finley denies getting any warnings about the video and said she will fight the charges against her.
